“Are you fighting against or working within a healthy structure?” Barbara Moore
((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))
When is patriarchy a good thing? When it appears in the form of The Emperor.
The Emperor is responsible for creating and maintaining systems of survival; everyone is safe, sound and cared for.
What about fun? Anyone having any fun?
The Emperor is a serious guy; he has no time for reckless frivolity. Take a look at the card above – you can just hear him saying “You are trying my patience.” See previous – serious guy. But there is good news! He does not actually forbid reckless frivolity; he simply is not interested, and does not provide it. Also, he really prefers everyone to avoid recklessness. If you are looking for fun, you will need to find it on your own – and make sure your chores are done!
TAKEAWAY: Approach The Emperor with an attitude of gratitude; his presence indicates your needs are/will be met with little or no difficulty at this time. Be sure to say “thank you.”
